The currently presented DIN SPEC 17071 is the first standard for quality assurance in additive manufacturing. It defines uniform requirements for plants, materials, processes and employees. Companies can use the guideline to set up a risk-minimized production process ready for industrial use. The standard was developed with the significant participation of Deutsche Bahn, MT Aerospace, Siemens and TÜV SÜD and can be viewed at the certifier's stand at formnext in Frankfurt until 22 November (Hall 11.1, Stand E60).

Several technology suppliers, technology users and research institutes have already confirmed their presentation titles for the Advanced Functional and Industrial Printing conference which returns on the 27-28th March 2019 to Radisson Blu Scandinavia in Düsseldorf. The event offers a particularly broad approach to printing methods which serve the production processes of today and near future. Until end of 2018 delegates can register at early bird rates.

Two factors eventually determine the effectiveness of your flexo printing process: the operator and the printing press. You can make the press as intelligent and flawless as possible, but if it’s very complex to use for an operator, you still don’t get the desired result. Operator-focused printing innovations always lead to optimum press control.

Oops! You placed an order for some boxes, and the sample that came back is just all wrong. You realize the fault lies with your mock-up, not the box manufacturer. What can you do to correct this? Especially if you’re spatially challenged! This means that it’s hard for you to visualize what the box would look like if it were flat or “exploded,” which is how boxes are manufactured.

Laser cutting, a.k.a. digital die cutting, uses high-powered lasers to vaporize materials in the lasers' beam path. The powering on and off of the laser beam and the way in which the beam path is directed towards the substrate effects the specific cuts that the artwork requires. Because cut away parts are vaporized the hand labor or complicated extraction methods otherwise needed for small part scrap removal is eliminated, by Markus Klemm, R&D Software Engineer, Spartanics.
